    After years of her sitting by my side, putting up with my crazy builds, she finally decided it was time for her to join the crowd.

    A 2019 4Runner SR5 Premium 4x4

    It has all the things she wanted:

    • Heated seats
    • Leather
    • Sunroof
    • Navigation
    • Satellite radio
    • 3rd row
    And none of the extras that I knew I would only end up replacing down the road...

    One day after the purchase, we are packed up and headed to Mexico!

    upload_2019-12-18_19-18-43.jpg

    Not long after we returned, I started gathering parts for Mods.

    In the picture below I have installed:

    • BDS uppers
    • Bilestin 5100's x 4
    • OME coils x 4
    • Sema wheels
    • 285/75/17 KO2's

    Thankfully the lift was installed before hurricane Imelda dropped feet upon feet of rain. She stayed high and dry, unfortunately I can't same the same for my daughters car :(

    After a few weeks of having to "jump" into the Runner, she decided it was time to have some steps put on. So after some research and a little good fortune, I found a set, in stock at Shrockworks in Houston with the specs we were looking for.

    One week later we are headed off to the trails in Hot Springs AR for the debut run :mudding:

    Well, she must have been paying attention all of these years as she took the right lines, handled the of camber stuff like a champ and made it out without any damage!

    More mods to come...:hattip:

    Glad to see this thread going.

    What's the max tire size anyone is running without any major cutting? I moved my SCS Stealth 6 wheels (17x8.5 4.30" BS 6x139.7) with 265/70/17 Grabbers over from my Taco to my new 4Runner and had minor wheel well rub. It's easy enough to trim at this point, but I'm curious what others are doing. I'd love to eventually run 285/75/17 but would prefer not to get into a body mount chop or trimming a body panel.

    A little mud slinging from a county road after a snow thaw.

    Damn that looks good with stock tire size. I'm convincing my girlfriend to get 265 70r 17 goodyear wranglers. Shell be running the trd pro wheels and spidertrax spacers though

    I'm running the same 4Runner wheel as in the photo and 265/70/18 on my limited and they rub slightly from time to time. I imagine the 285/75/17 is really going to need some trimming to make it fit. I am getting conflicting information about fitment. Some say the 285/75/17 will fit with a 2 inch lift and UCA's and minor cutting/ forming of the fender liners. Others are saying not a problem. Guess this topic needs some good research.

    Ahhh that is what I was searching for. Looks like the 285/75/17 will be a bit of work to run.

    not suggest to run the OEM or TRD with a 285/75. Width of the wheel is too small.

    I run the 285/70/17 on a TRD wheel, max I’d run.

    @Overkill07 I recently made the switch to a 4runner from my Taco. What did you think of the Bilstein on the 4Runner? I had some on my Taco and at times it felt to ride really harsh in the rear.
